Burger, fries, salads, drinks, hot dogs at Portillo's in Buena Park, CA

Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner—Located right outside the Knott’s Berry Farm entrance, Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner has been serving homestyle favorites to families since 1934. It was even named one of the 50 most kid-friendly restaurants by Open Table in 2019. Bring your crew here to enjoy a family-style meal with fried chicken and your choice of sides like mashed potatoes, corn, baked beans, and more. Be sure to save room for the pie (we recommend the hometown favorite, boysenberry pie).

Portillo’s Hot Dogs—Chicago-style dogs come to Orange County at this spot that’s perfect for family dining. The menu includes family favorites like hot dogs, Italian beef sandwiches, burgers, ribs, and pasta. While Portillo’s might be known for their hot dogs, they are equally famous for their chocolate cake and the over-the-top chocolate cake shake.

Pizza with pepers at Pizza Studio in Buena Park, CA

Pizza Studio—At Pizza Studio, it’s all about the high-quality ingredients that go into their pizzas from the crust to the toppings. Choose from six crusts like firecracker and rosemary parmesan, and then top your pie with traditional pepperoni or more unique options like spicy buffalo sauce and fire-roasted corn.

Porto’s Bakery & Cafe—A visit to Yelp’s #1 restaurant in the country is a must when you come to Buena Park. Porto’s Bakery & Cafe offers traditional Cuban pastries like the refugiado (guava and cheese strudel) and everyone’s favorite papa rellena (potato ball filled with ground meat and Spanish seasonings). Step up to the pastry case for a dulce de leche napoleon or a mango mousse—you won’t regret it.

Rock & Brews—You definitely won’t have to worry about your kid crew being too rowdy at Rock & Brews as the music is always playing and the rock n’ roll vibe is chill. Choose an outdoor spot where you can bring your four-legged friends and enjoy some pizza, wings, salads, and tacos. The kids menu has lots of options for little diners and a killer root beer float.
